NAPA is encouraging people to nominate them for a chance to win £1,000 as part of specialist insurer Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards, which is giving £1million away to charities this summer.
Winners will be drawn at random and the more times NAPA is nominated the more chance it has of being selected.
£1,000 will enable NAPA to provide the equivalent of 66 hours of Helpline support that is 13 5-hour shifts. The NAPA Helpline service is a freephone line, a closed online support group and a monthly reflective practice session for activity and care teams providing activity, arts, and engagement in care homes, people’s homes, assisted living, and in hospital.
NAPA is encouraging everyone to use their social media channels to ask people to vote for them to give the charity the best possible chance of winning.
Hilary Woodhead, NAPA’s Executive Director says ‘Our FREE confidential Helpline service supports practitioners to prioritise wellbeing. Activity and Care providers can phone us, message us or join our support and share network and attend reflective practice sessions. Over the last year activity and care teams have gone above and beyond to ensure the people they support experience meaningful engagement, the NAPA Helpline service has provided a supportive ear when the challenges seemed unsurmountable. We would really benefit from the Movement for Good Award which would help us to continue to provide this essential support service’
Mark Hews, Group Chief Executive of Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, says: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of Ecclesiastical’s Movement for Good awards for the third year running. Our Movement for Good awards will continue to help charities at a time when they need it most and we know that for many charities, £1,000 can make a real difference.
“We were thrilled to receive so many nominations from the public last year and this year we are encouraging even more people to nominate a good cause. Ecclesiastical, the fourth largest corporate donor in the UK, is a unique financial services group. We are owned by a charity which means all available profits can be given to the good causes that are so important to our customers. As a company whose purpose is to contribute to the greater good of society, charitable giving is at the heart of our business.”
